Organization With Many
Votes to Sparc Will Proba
bly Win in Utah.
Probably Even Break Be
tween Two Principal Par
lies Outside This Couniy.
On iho eve of election the situation
in Utah is more in doubt than at any
time during tho campaign. Kvcry in
dication points tu a close contest
throughout the .state, ami especially in
this county. Tho Republicans have a
slight advantage both in the county
and the stato over the other parties be
cause of the fact that, the Jtopnblicnn
party i in power and that for several
years past the Republicans have had
main votes to spare in the stale.
. Governor Spry seems assured of re
election bv aboul ."iOOU plurality. lie
will, however, run 12000 or .1000 ahead
of the average. poLIed by other .Repub
lican candidates for state ollice. The
congrc5sional ticket is running coin-id-eralilv
behind, the. state ticket and Ihc
two "Democrat ie candidates for congress
appear to havii the advantage in the
coming election.
In tho state outsido of Salt Lake
county the Republicans and Democrats
will just alioiit break even, according
to present indications. Governor Spry
will probably come into Sail, hake with
a plurality and will increase it consid
erably in this county. The rest of the
state ticket is about on eeu terms with
the Democratic .state ticket in the state
outside of Salt Lake countv and the
Democratic congressional ticket will
likely come into Salt Lake with a plu
rality. This County Doubtful.
The result of the election, therefore,
depends largely on the result in Sail
Lake county. Partisan politicians when
speaking frankly admit thai, they are
unable to arrive'at any prediction rela
tive to this county that will satisfy
themselves. Most agree that the coun
ty will be eloi-e, though one or two pre
dict a landslide. Vrom surface indica
tions it would appear that the .Repub
licans would have a slight lend in the
county, the Democrats would be second
and the. Progressives third.
It is now conceded thai the Pro
gressives will poll a large vote in the
county. The consensus of opinion is
that the Progressive vote will bo 10.
000 and possibly more. The Progrcv
sives will have a large percentage, of
the American vote and from 10 to 20
per cent of the TCepublienn vote.
'The Democrats are sanguine in Hie
count and are predicting a Democratic
victory in Iho county by from 'J.lOlT to
.1000 plurality. Democrats sv they
will hold the Rryan vote of four years
ago and in addition will secure many
Republican votes. Dryan four years
ago secured a vote of 12.l.-t in I he
county, which, with three parties in
the field, would he almost, enough to
carry the county this fall. However,
it is certain that soin6 of those who
voted for P.ryan in this county four
vears ago will this vear vote for either
Rooscvolt or Taft. On the other hand
there appears to bo considerable justifi
cation for the Democratic belief that
manv hundreds of Mormon voters who
voted the Republican ticket four years
ago to defeat the American party will
this year return to the fold.
Tho Republican ttrongthin this coun
ty will bo augmented ly tho addition
of manv American voters who Avcro
former "Republicans and who will bo
Republicans again this year. He-publican
leaders assert that this addition
will mako up for defections to the
Democratic and Progrcssivo parlies.
It is hardly likely that this gain will
offset the 'loss. "However, it would
rofuirc a net loss of about 000 votes
on tho part of the Republicans to give
cither tho Progressives or Democrats
more than an oven chance to cany the
county. There, is an apathy with the
Republicans that a hard-wosking or
ganization has not overcome, and sonio
Republicans aro expressing the fear
that this apathy will Tcsult in a de
feat for tho Republicans in tho county.
Progressives Will Lose.
Throughout tho state the strength
of the Republicans has been broken
into both by tho Progressives and the
Democrats. "The Progressives have no
chance, to carry tho state, but. they
have been making common cause ivith
tho Democrats and would regard a
Democratic victory in the state as a
triumph for the Progressives. In many
of the counties the organizations have
been working with considerable hnr
niouy, each organization lighting the
Republicans, but leaving each other
The Republicans in the first part of
the week appeared U) be making gains
and the Progressives were apparently
standing slill, but toward the end o'f
the week a tremendous drift toward
the Progressives sci in and in some
counties the Progressive vote will ex
ceed tho claims of the most enthusi
astic Progressiyo managers. Marked
Progressive gains have, been apparent
in Beaver, Box Elder, Cache, Carhon,
Sevier. Sanpoto and Weber counties.
The result in each of the counties has
necessarily bcon direct benefit to the
Democrats and indications arc I hat the
Democrat's will carry each of these
Progressives aro claiming several
c.ouutios in tho state, including Salt
Lake county. Tt is hardly likelv that
they will be able to do b'ctlcr in any
of the countios claimed, than to divide
tho regular Republican vote and nllow
the Democrats to win.
May Win in One County.
The Progreive5 are not claiming
Piute countv. but information that

Cafe Managers and Saloon
Men Will Protest to City
Considerable dissatisfaction was mani
fested ycHtcnlny by- cafe nianapcr.'i who
run bars In connection with their places,
and hy tho saloon keepers of the city
over the order from Chief of Police Grant
that they would be required to keep all
bars closed from midnight tonlRht until
0 o'clock Wednesday morning- The. cafes
had made special aiTanfjomcnts for elec
tion returns, and were plnnnlny to en

They supposed that they would be per

been, dime In the past.
The new liquor law, passed tn K'll.
saya that licensed llo,uor dealers shall
keep their placca of business closed "on
the day of any soneral or special elec
tion" Where tlds means that "election
day" Is the time wlun the polls aro open
or whether It means ih entire day, is
the question that Is bothering Hie cafe
owners. It Is probable that thoy will
ask for an interpretation of the law to
day and take, the matter up with the city
In the past the saloons and the cafes
have opened their bars after the polls
were closed. Tills, however, was under
an old oj-dinance. which, according to
police officlala, has been replaced by tho
1011 law, which reads differently and
which they tako to mean that the s;ile of
liquors Is unlawful throughout the en
tire day.
'T will take the matter up with our
attorney." said Cieorsc O, Ttelf. manager
of tho Hotel Utah, last ni-lit. "If he
decides that the. law provides that we
must not sell liquor at any time during
the day we will abide by the law."
Other cafe maunders seemed to be of!
the fame opinion, tiiat they would not
sell liquor if they would trungrcss the
law by doing so. but a number of the
saloon men and cafe proprietors strenu
ously objected and said that they would
make certain that they would he wrong
if they opened before they would change
their plans.

Provides Tor Creation of New
Counties and Passage
Is Urged.
If Answered in the Affirma
tive, One New County
.. Is Assured.
Declaring that the creation of a new
county embracing the eastern portion
of Wasatch county and the western
portion of Uintah county is an absolute
necessity to tho citizens of tho rapidly
developing Uintah basin country, a com
mittee representing the commercial
clubs of that section and headed by
Harden Honnion and If. S. Collett of
.Roosovelt, Utah, has drafted ah address
lo the voters of Utah, urging a favor
able ballot on question No. at the
election Tuesday, which proposes to
amend section 1, article II of ihc state
constitution, relating :o counties, cities
and townt. and providing for the crea
tion of new counties.
In a letter to The Tribune Mr. Reu
nion ?ets forth that the committee was
appointed by the commercial clubs of
the Uintah basin to further the adop
tion of the proposed amendment. The
amendment as constructed provides
that no new countv shall be created
unless a majority of the qualified elec
tors voting in each part of the county
or counties to be dismembered shall
vote separately therefor thus prevent
ing any action bv tho legislature con
trary to the wishes of the people.
Appeal to Voters.
Mr. Picnnion further writes that the
proposed amendment is supported bv
a majority of Ihe electors of Wasatch
and Uintah counties. Following is the
appeal of iho conuuitteo to the voters
of the state:
To the Voters of the Slate of Utah'
We desire in call your special attention
tu the proposal to amend section 1 of
arthle. II of the state constitution, re
latino to counties cities and towns, and
providing for the creatine of new coun
ties, and to ask your favorable action
thereon at the approaching election.
Several of our counties jn-c extremely
la rue. with mountain mus and other
natural barriers dividing their extreme
loniilhs. There can be no doubt but that
in the course of timosand in the interests
of the ciilr.ens of tlx- Plate. It will be
come necessary and vlriht to divide the-'-o
large counties and to mako new ones.
Thi3 should be done always alony: the
broad lines of benefit to the majority of
the people affected thereby, and by 'and
with their consent.
People Will Decide.
The above proposed constitutional
amendment is so constructed ami it. pro
vides that no new county shall be formed
unless ji majority of the riia!iflod elee
toi's votinsr in each part of the county or
counties to be dismembered, shall vote
separately therefor, thus preventing any
actirn by the l"cllature contrary to the
wishes of the people.
To (hose acquainted with the condi
tions existing in the former Uintah in
diroi reservation, no argument Is needed
to shotv the absolute necessity of the
creation of a new county lo embrace tho
eastern portion of Wasatch county nnd
the western portion of Uintah county.
To those not acquainted, wo -desire to
say that such a proposition has. wo be
lieve, tho consent and support of a ma
jority of the. electors of Wasatch and
Uintah counties.
Conditions Set Out.
The territory so sought to he created
into a new county includes an area two
and one-hulf times tho size of the state
of Rhode island nnd one and one-half
times the size of tho state of Delaware.
Moreover. It contains ono-thlrd of the
Irri'-niblc lands of the slate of I'tah No
part of this vast territory is-now within
twenty-five miles of tho county seat of
Uintah county or within forty miles of
tho county scat of Wasatch connty, and
the, extremes of the territory are more
tiinn 100 miles from a couniy seat, and
on t ho Wasatch side a hcay range of
mountains separates the people- from tho
couniy scat, making It very expensive and
inconvenient to reach that point at all.
This largo territory, now so much in
need of the benefits of county govern
ment, will In all probability yet require
to again, at fomo time tu the future,
bo segregated Into additional counties.
Tor our Immediate relief, therefore, and
In order to meet tho Inevitable require
ments of other parts of the state in tho
not distant future, we apnal to you for
your favorable ballot for the amendment
of sect Ion I of article JI now before the

Voters May Investigate Them
and Then Pass on Them

Following are the cicht i)ropocl
amendments to tho ftatc const il.ul.iou
to be voted on tomorrow. They aro sot
out. and explained in such jnnnncr that
thev will be easily understood and
voters will then bo in a position to act
intelligent ly upon tho propositions:
QUESTION 1 Members of the slate
legislature now receive fy per day and
Iti cents mileage each way. This is the
limit allowed bv the constitution.
The amend nient provides that thoy
shall rceehe $S per day and 10 cents
milen-xe each way until otherwibc pro
vided by law.
QUESTION 2 Tho constitution now
provides that any city or town may in
cur indebtedness not exceeding ! per
cent of the assessed value of its tax
able property, for tho purpose of sup
plvint; water, artificial lights or sewers,
wncn ho works therefor are owned and
controlled by the municipality. .
The amendment uulhnrir.es cities of
the second class (having less than 2).
flnij inhabitants) anil cities of the third
class, and towns, to incur indebtedness
not e.xcecdinir S per cent of iln assessed
valuation for said purposes. The change
is from 1 to S per cent :fnd the amend
ment does not affect. Salt Lake t'ity.
The indebtedness for said purposes
under the present constitution and un
der the amendment can bu incurred
onlv by a nui.iorify vote of qit.ililicd
electors, who must bo taxpayers, yotinc
at an election on the question of ineur-l-iiii;
such debl.
QUESTION 3 The amendment pro
vides for the formation of new counties
from territory of existing- counties,
when a majority of tho qualified elec
tors voting in the territory to be cut:
off. and also in tho territory remaining",
shall vote, separately for the formation
of such now county,
QUESTION -1 Tho constitution now
provides that tho state treasurer shall
be the custodian of public moneys.
The amendment provides that the
public moneys shall be deposited by tho
treasurer under the supervision of tho
hoard of examiners. The board under
present law is composed of the gover
nor, secretary of state and attorney
It should be noted that, this amend
ment, will probably relieve the state
treasurer under his bond from liability
for loss of state funds deposited.
QUESTION 5 The constitution now
prohibits the leeislaturo from exempt
ing any property from taxation. Tt
also provides that property shall be
taxed in proportion to it? value. Tlio
legislature must also provide an annual
'tax, sulliciont to pay tho state debt, if
any, within twenty years from tho pas
sago of any law (;rcattnr the debt.
The amendment authorizes the legis
lature to provide for exemptions from
taxation. Tt also eliminates the provi
sion Hint propert3" musr be taxed in
proportion to its value. It. requires tho
legislature to provide for the. payment
of the state debt only before it becomes
due. and not by tax to be levied an
nually. This amendment would enable the
legislature to exempt classes of prop
erty or property of classes of persons
or corporations from taxation.
QUESTION 6 The amendment pro
vides for the appointment of a board
of equalization consisting- of four resi
dents of the state' instead of tho state
officer's: now constituting such board."
and also provides that the state board
and the several county hoards shall ad
,lust the valuation of the property of
tho state and of the several counties,
instead of the state hoard adjustiug
for tho several counties and the county
boards adjusting within their respective
QUESTION 7 By the constitution
the legislature must provide a uniform
and equal rate of assessment and tax
ation of all property in the slate, ac
cording to its value in money. "
so that every person and corporation
shall pay a (ax in proportion to tho
value of the property.
Tho amendment provides that the as
sessment shall be just and equitable,
at the actual money value, and that
taxes shall bo uniform on the same class
of property within the territorial lim
itF of the authority levying the tax;
and that tho tax shall be levied for
public purposes only.
QUESTION 8- The con-st itution pro
vides that mines and mining claims,
I containing gold, silver, copper, lead,
coal or other valuable mineral depos
its shall be taxed, after purchase from
the United States at the price paid the
United States therefor, etc.
The amondment provides that mines
and mining olaini3 containing- gold, sil
ver, copper, lead or other valuable
precious metals, after purchase thereof
from the United States, shall be taxed
at a value not greater than the price
paid tho United States therefor, etc.
And thai all lamli containing coal, hy
drocarbons or stone, deposits, and the
net proceeds therefrom, 3hnll be taxed
as provided by law.
It will bo seen that tho legislature,
under the amendment, may authorize
the assessment of precious mineral
lands at a valuation lower than that
permitted under tho present constitu
tion, and that it mav lower or increase
Ihe assessment valuation of conl lands-,
and other mines not containing valua
bio. precious metals.
